Working together with parents & carers
Our academy community recognises the importance of staff and parents/ carers working together so that our pupils receive the best possible support, make good progress and value their wellbeing. Communication promotes a partnership.
At Olive Academies we are committed to the following principles:
- we always welcome contact from parents and carers
- we respond as quickly and as fully as possible to parents and carers’ queries or concerns
- we actively involve parents and carers in our work with pupils
- we share information as often and as fully as possible with parents and carers.
At our academy:
- parent/carer meetings are offered half-termly to discuss written reports
- we offer regular meetings with parents/carers to agree educational provision for pupils
- parents/carers are most welcome at academy events (please see our academy event calendar)
- we have a termly parent/ carer forum which gives parents/ carers regular opportunities to give their feedback and share their ideas with academy leaders
